Press Release:

Gallery 286 is pleased to present a solo exhibition of Matt Gee’s mixed media practice.

Gee uses the different gallery spaces at 286 to enhance the varied aspects of his work, which continues to occupy the territory between art and science and employs a visual language evocative of the science laboratory with its arcane equipment, charts and cross section diagrams.
The work aims to discover the origins of society's desire for materialistic possessions and to question our understanding of issues such as pollution and contamination, whilst inviting us to explore the dichotomy of Synthetic vs Authentic.
